Malicious attacks on the computer are anything that involves attempting to gain information or virtually attain access to a network without permission. Examples include phishing, hacking, and cyber mischief. We will focus on history, current methods of attack, and prevention, which includes computer security.
University facilities with huge mainframe computers, like MIT's artificial intelligence lab, become staging grounds for hackers.
In one of the first arrests due to malicious attacks on the computer, the FBI busts six teen-age hackers from Milwaukee, known as the "414s" after the local area code. The hackers are accused of some 60 computer break-ins, including from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to Los Alamos National Laboratory. One of the hackers gets immunity for his testimony; the other five get probation.
The Department of Defense severs the links between the unclassified Military Network, or Milnet, and the Arpanet - the early Internet - after it is discovered that someone has broken into at least one Milnet computer.
